Will this course suit you?

Sources: UCAS & KIS

Every degree course is different, so it’s important to find one that suits your interests and matches the way you prefer to work – from the modules you’ll be studying to how you’ll be assessed. Top things to look for when comparing courses

Course description

If you have little or no knowledge of Russian, this degree will allow you to learn the language from scratch while gaining an insight into Russian culture, history and politics. Core modules will develop your speaking, reading, listening and writing skills and youâ??ll spend your second year studying in Russia to improve them. Youâ??ll also be introduced to Russian culture and literature and choose from a wide range of optional modules exploring topics that suit your interests. Sociology allows you to study the ways in which societies and institutions are structured and organised, as well as the effects they have on human behaviour. Core modules introduce you to key theories and approaches in sociology and how they apply to todayâ??s society. You then develop this knowledge in optional modules allowing you to explore important and often controversial issues such as drug policy, crime, the sex trade, family dynamics, disability rights and protest movements.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Most sociology graduates go straight into work when they complete their degrees, and a lot of graduates go into jobs in social professions such as education, community and youth work, housing and social work. But sociology is a flexible degree and you can find graduates from the subject in pretty much every reasonable job – obviously, you don't find many doctors or engineers, but you do find them in finance, the media, sport, healthcare, marketing and even IT. Sociology graduates taking further study often branch out into other qualifications, like teaching, law, psychology and even maths, so don’t think a sociology degree restricts you to just one set of options.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Most graduates studying a Russian and East European course studied Russian, and with Russia playing an important part in world business and politics, graduates are in demand. This is an elite group – fewer than 200 UK graduates got degrees in this subject in 2012, but they usually command some of the highest salaries of all language graduates. London was by far the most likely place for Russian graduates to work in the UK and naturally, a reasonable proportion went overseas. Postgraduate study (usually in law or languages) is also quite common – this is a growing area for the UK.
